In Reply to: RE: Oppo 205 - Any one purchased this player? posted by dbphd on May 03, 2017 at 11:30:36
The Oppo 205 is expensive and could be troublesome like the 203 as reported on several forums. I believe that if only using HDMI the well specified Sony UBP-X800 is a better buy especially for 4K, I shall receive one in a weeks time, expect it to be excellent with my Sony ES receiver and Sony 4K XD9305 TV.

Disbeliever tends to make absolute statements, but whether a $1200 universal player that provides a high-quality DAC is expensive is a judgement call. OTOH, I've owned four Oppos, 105, 105D, 205, and whatever came before the 105 (85 or 95), each in daily use, and none has been troublesome. That's an absolute statement I can justify based on experience.
My absolute statement is that I have owned OPPOs 85 95 103 , I would not touch another Oppo with a barge pole. Overpriced, Overrated IMO.
That's a rather odd statement for someone who's owned three Oppo players. You must be a little slow at the uptake! ;-)
I've owned only one -- a BDP-105D and I like mine a lot. It's basically the heart of audio/video entertainment system.
I was misled by the reviews, tried the 103 for myself, found it was very poor value, with inferior performance to Sony, so I got refund ,all I wasted was valuable time. I did ask OPPO if the 105 was any better, they said using HDMI both were same.
I have never seen anyone who likes to discount the quality of a product out of hand without even seeing that product like you.
you are correct in that I have not tried the 205 , my previous experience with Oppo means that I will never buy another one. However you are wrong because I have tried Oppos.
Odd - I don't know them at all ... but everyone I talk who has used them raves about them. Who you going to believe, or disbelieve, as the case may be?
It seems to be disbeliever contra mundum.
Oppo 85 & 95 many updates required were troublesome, I found the 103 to be inferior to Sony for both video & SQ also very poor value especially in UK., I returned it for a refund.
